Support Midcoast journalism and

Penobscot Bay Pilot’s mission to be an

open and accessible Community Hub for

the greater Penobscot Bay region

Pilot Propeller Button

We feel strongly, and as our ever-growing readership demonstrates, there is a need for community hubs to inform us about what is happening, whether that be town news, events, or stories that illustrate our diversity.

Penobscot Bay Pilot takes pride in being an open and lively conduit for sharing information throughout the region. Watch this daily, hourly, and often by the minute, as stories pour through our river of news.

Articles by award-winning writers, photography, videos, business and organization news and offers, opinions and letters — the Pilot streams it to the community, and well beyond!

The news industry is increasingly using paywalls to support journalism.  But, we have listened to many of you over the past five years, how you don't like paywalls and how you would like to support us in our mission to remain an open community hub.

Now you can. Become a Pilot Supporter today!

We have two programs: Pilot Propeller and Pilot Mooring

Pilot Propellers are those who would like to give a little each month, $2.99 in fact. And, based on supporter feedback, we have added $4.99 and $9.99 per month options as well.

Pilot Moorings are supporters who would like to give once or annually in the amounts of $25/yr, $50/yr, $100, $500, $1,000 — you name it!

We welcome whatever you choose to provide.  We will use your support to continue growing this open regional hub.  Even if you don’t choose to participate in this program, your visits to the site are always welcome.

And for our Propellers and Moorings, we have a special invitation: Come visit us for conversation on Fridays, noon to 1 p.m., RSVP at Share a cup of coffee or tea with us, we can all share our thoughts about what makes life tick in the Midcoast, and you'll go home with a Pilot Mug.

If you have questions, require assistance, please contact Pat in our administrative office - call 207-633-4620 ext 104, or email
